So where did it go???

Postby Jan.vanderlinden » Sun Sep 10, 2017 12:41 am

Awhile back I bought the graduation set from Design & Make and it went to my library under the Design & make folder.
Recently I bought the Texas star and its not to be found in the Design & make folder.
Can someone explain why?

Yes I did use it.
But it did not go to the clip art file like the other one did.

Sounds like you've bought and individual clipart item this time rather than a project as you did last time. As far as I know the individual ones download as actual clipart files not as installers (certainly the ones I've bought in the past do) so you need to manually copy the file from your download area to the clipart folder.

I cant find the file.
I've gone to my downloads and the only thing I can fine is a "failed download"
but I've already used it once.
do I have to buy it again?
I'm missing something here.

If you go to your account on the Design and Make website (https://store.designandmake.com/account/) you can download any of your previous purchases.

You can always perform a search of your hard drive if you know the file name (or portion thereof).

Might be quicker just to re-download if your drive is really large.

So what tutorial would show me how to place a 3D image on top of another.
As in the Texas star on top of a plaque that is in the clip art file?
